Consequences as such, 0.  Could mean you are a tad rich at that stage, maybe
push choke in.
However if that makes engine run unhappily then either the carb is too lean
or the choke is misadjusted.
I get light on in SC when it is only on fast idle occasionally.  I hae carb
a bit lean, going to fit an EGO some time...

Subject: [ROVERNET - UK] P5 cold start light question

Hello all.

I've just got my '67 MKIII on the road, and am working out the last few
kinks... Can anyone tell me the implications, if any, of the cold start
light staying on after the car has warmed up?

The manual describes the thermal switch in the engine and the manual switch
behind the cold start pull, but no mention of any consequence, should the
light stay on. Mine is off at start, then comes on after warming up.

Any thoughts appreciated.
